I got a pelvic X-Ray taken, and there's a ring-shaped circle looking thing on the left hip? What is it?

I got an X-Ray for my right hip to check my recovery from a surgery I had a while ago. I took a picture of the X-Ray and then noticed that on the left side, there was a ring-shaped circle... I have no idea what it is? Or if it's something to be concerned about?

    Its metal, whether is is in you or on the film from the table or a drape etc cant say. Ask you doc about it. Worried? Not right now, it will need other views to determine where it is. )lateral, oblique etc)
